      • Sysplexes
      • Network
      • CPU
      • Memory
    • Configuration Data Operating System
    • DB2 subsystems
    • CICS information
    • IMS information
    • MQ Subsystems
    • APF datasets

    • The solution shall produce detailed verbose logs of mainframe discovery process in text or another accessible format for data integrity, quality assurance, and troubleshooting purposes.
    • The solution shall have the ability to provide information on connectivity and communication with other systems.
    • The solution shall interface with and populate ServiceNow’s Configuration Management Database (CMDB) with the discovered mainframe hardware and configuration data through an automated and seamless integration.
    • Any non-mainframe component of the solution shall have the ability to be installed on Windows Server 2016 or later edition.
      • Vendor shall also provide information on the availability of Linux installation, including version information.
    • The solution shall not be provided as a pre-configured virtual machine image.
    • The solution shall have the ability to provide authentication and single sign on via SAML 2.0.
    • The solution shall support the ability to mask sensitive data elements and protect any personally identifiable information (PII)
    • The solution shall be Federal Section 508 compliant.
    • The solution shall be IPv4 and IPv6 compatible.
